The awards honor individuals and organizations working to preserve and restore original structures and traditions that are part of the history of Jefferson County.
Two types of awards are presented.
The Mary P. Johnson Award is given to historic structure projects that meet the federal secretary of Interior’s high standards for restoration.
Certificates of appreciation are given for a variety of preservation and restoration projects, and are not limited to physical structures.
Any project may be worthy of an award, and anyone may nominate a project for consideration.
All nominations will be reviewed by the historical society’s historic preservation awards committee.
In the past, awards have gone to such major projects as restoring Port Townsend’s City Hall and the Jefferson County Courthouse clock tower.
However, restoration of more modest buildings is considered to be equally important.
Nonstructure awards have been presented to authors of historic cookbooks and local histories, museum exhibits, oral history projects and people who have contributed to the preservation of Jefferson County history.
Nomination forms can be found online at www.JCHSMuseum.org or may be picked up at the historical society headquarters at historic City Hall, 540 Water St.
